1) Can you provide me with the AC unit manufacturer name and the model number so I can review the required electrical spec's?
2) Depending upon your existing wiring and the type of dwelling, there may be some alternative options.
3) Will the AC unit be installed in a single family home or an apartment or condo?
4) Any idea as to the existing type of wiring scheme that was originally cable or metal conduit for the various wall receptacle boxes?
